There are many different ways of describing Prof. Dr. h.c. Viktor Dulger: a visionary with an entrepreneurial spirit, a pioneer of metering technology, a patron with conviction.
As a life-sustaining element, water played a central role in his life. He recognised at an early age the significance that providing clean water would have for future generations. As an engineer, his primary mission was therefore to develop and make optimum use of technical means to produce and reuse potable water. His guiding principle of "We keep liquids moving to avoid new equipment stopping downstream" serves as both a legacy and stimulus for today's workforce.
Alongside his passion for technological innovation, another of the very special things about Prof. Dr. h.c. Viktor Dulger was his commitment to society and culture. Since the year 2000, the German Centre for Music Therapy Research in Heidelberg has borne his name and is known as the Viktor Dulger Institute. For many decades he donated objects produced by various artists, some from abroad, for display in public spaces – these can be seen in numerous places throughout the Rhine-Neckar region. The enquiring mind and entrepreneurial spirit of Prof. Dr. h.c. Viktor Dulger also continue in theof young people in natural sciences and training thanks to awards from the Viktor-und-Sigrid-Dulger-Foundation.
